Rod Thorpe: February 2017
This year's Fairtrade Fortnight starts today, 27th February and runs until March 10. During this time watch out for events and offers. The theme this year is 'Put Fairtrade into your Break'. For those workers amongst us, why not share some Fairtrade snacks and drinks with colleagues and visitors? Take some Fairtrade products into work to share during breaks.
This Easter, if you are buying Chocolate eggs, whatever the size, go for those made of Fairtrade chocolate. Certain lines of Egg even include the Easter story to add meaning to the experience of eating Britain's favourite sweet Visiting a National Trust property now gives you the opportunity to drink Fairtrade tea and coffee as well as choose other Fairtrade products from their restaurants and coffee shops, following their commitment to use them.
Finally, look out for the Fairtrade symbol when you shop and for more information, click here for the Fairtrade website, or click here for the Traidcraft website..
